This chapter considers how imagination develops and how it might go wrong. It identifies complex relationships between imagination and pretence, and speculates on how these different relationships might appear in the different stages of growing up. It asks how pretence and pretending might help us towards a sophisticated concept of belief, and argues that they will not take us all the way.
